Chemistry & catalysis are in the DNA of the new company. Our tagline ‘Tomorrow’s Chemistry. Today’ shows where our passion, strength and added value are. InnoSyn is already working for numerous large companies as well as for a considerable number of small companies. DSM will remain a long-term customer for part of its chemistry projects. All our cooperation partners are positive about the spin-out and they look forward to our development in the future. InnoSyn and its pilot plant will stay located at Brightlands Chemelot Campus, where we feel very much at home.”

Bert Kip, CEO Brightlands Chemelot Campus comments: “The unique capabilities of InnoSyn have a strong, synergistic fit with the ambitions of Brightland Chemelot Campus.
